Last December, in the midst of the craziness of Manila during the holiday season, I decided to make a “quick escape” with the family to take a breather and to just “chill” — literally and figuratively! My little food business, TASTE BY GRACE HOME was doing well, which also meant there was a barrage of… Continue reading TSM FAVE THINGS : DECEMBER – My Favorite Food Stops in Tokyo
My last post about our Tokyo trip looked like a food journal, and I couldn’t help it – food is always a big part of my itinerary! I did skip one restaurant purposely though, because I believe the meal I had here deserves to be highlighted separately. This is the dinner we had in the French restaurant,… Continue reading L’Effervescence: A French Japanese Dinner in Tokyo
Tokyo. The capital of Japan. The city where the ultra-modern is set alongside the traditional.
Konnichiwa! We were barely back in Manila after our 3 week stay in the US (did I even tell you I was back?) and I found myself packing again. And now, I’m sending this postcard from Tokyo!
Tokyo is another city I love going back to. My family and I try to visit at least once a year.

The city is dotted with sky high buildings, neon lights and colorful Harajuku girls in the midst of traditional Buddhist temples and Shinto… Continue reading The Best Of Tokyo – Part 1
This trip to Japan which started off in Niseko followed by Kyoto and Osaka is my first big trip in 2017. It is my first as we left on the first day of the new year, on January 1st at that! They say that is the best way to start the year rolling!
We are on the first week of December and the holidays are indeed in full swing! People are rushing to and fro, traffic is getting worse by the day as holiday parties increase in frequency and reunions just seem to happen one after the other! And I’m sure most of you (just like me) have… Continue reading The busiest time of the year is here!!!
For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you probably know where I am now. Yes, I am away again… I am in the colorful and bustling city of Tokyo! I am here to celebrate “quietly” my turning a year older! But please let us not talk about age… or aging… or any related… Continue reading TSM FAVE THINGS – NOVEMBER
